In 48 hours, Richard Spencer got results NPR struggled for years to achieve.
We had Google on the run. I listen to NPR closely, and they went from being on defensive about James Damore’s heroic truth-telling to salivating over “domestic right-wing terrorism” after the Charlottesville death toll.
If we thought HeilGate was bad, just wait until the fatal, fiery helicopter crashes happen.
Richard Spencer has a kill count now and blood on his hands. Eric Clanton couldn’t kill a free speech supporter with a bike lock but a Spencer-organizer rally can kill a couple cops. Will Spencer’s fanboys will love him more than ever, especially because he has a kill count? Spencer: Three / Antifa: Zero!
One can just hear them now: “They already call us Nazis, so why not identify as Nazis?” “They already call us murderers complicit in white supremacy, so why not try to murder some leftists?”
At least the “white sharia” meme is working: They have a Car of Peace now.
Spencer is “not responsible,” but, of course, he is completely responsible: Both because he knew that something like this is exactly what would happen and because the entire media is going to treat him as responsible (which, of course, he knew was going to happen).
I’m pleased to say I didn’t attend the rally so I didn’t have to wash the blood off my hands and wring it out from my soul.
And who the hell invited David Duke?
However bad I thought the day would be, it multiplied by several magnitudes with the helicopter crash.
The Alt-Right constantly talks about “helicopter rides,” but at the rate Spencer and the other so-called leaders are going, there won’t be any helicopters left to give free rides by the time they achieve their “Alt-Right victory.”
The only word I can think of is calamitous. Nothing gets normal conservatives angrier than dead cops.
But don’t worry, the Alt-Right has turned itself around 360 degrees. They have returned to hating cops, just as they did when they were libertarians. And once a libertarian, always a libertarian. “F*ck da police!” screams the Alt-Right/BLM alliance after Charlottesville. They have a common enemy now: Pigs in a blanket, fry ‘em like bacon!
I was especially amused by Spencer tweeting to his followers to “disperse” and run away… Such leadership!
Baked Alaska may suffer permanent eye damage from getting bear-maced. Why isn’t Spencer paying for all of his medical bills? And why isn’t he writing a check for the funeral costs of the dead cops in the helicopter crash?
Spencer doesn’t care about “his people.” He talks abstractly about “dispossession” but leads individual Americans who love their country and care about their race into terrible traps.
As a “brand,” the Alt-Right was irreparably damaged by HeilGate, but now it is dead and Spencer killed it, deliberately killed it, with malice of forethought.
Not only that: The mainstream conservative movement was just coming around to the view that the SPLC is a hoax. That narrative may be off the table now. Spencer should demand a 10 percent finder’s fee on all SPLC donations.
There are other problems to address.
Terminal Dilettante Syndrome is unacceptable if one wants to lead a “revolutionary” movement.
Sam Francis’ magnum opus Leviathan and Its Enemies is only available through third-party sellers, routing money around any Alt-Right outlet and funneling into the pockets of at best non-entities and at worst into the pockets of Democratic Party donors.
The last article posted on the Radix website dates from March 21, 2017. The online magazine appears to have folded without so much as a goodbye note.
How derelict is the NPI website? Click on “Events” and you are taken to a webpage that says “Buy This Domain.”
Spencer didn’t do the paperwork to keep NPI’s tax-exempt status. The NPI Events domain is up for sale. Leviathan is out of print and not available on Kindle. Radix, which regularly published Gregory Hood, the most eloquent and incisive writer since Sam Francis, is essentially defunct, a ghost town. AlternativeRight.com is gone along with many crucial articles written during the Obama era.
Spencer’s stunt also forced Trump’s allies to disavow him. Matt Drudge ran a banner headline: “MAKE AMERICA HATE AGAIN!” Trump’s biggest media booster besides Breitbart during the primaries has turned against him. “RACE STORM” is Drudge’s Sunday banner. On Sunday the White House was forced to condemn “white supremacists.” Trump has to return to D.C. to say “racism is evil.”
Bannon stuck his neck out and praised the “alt-right,” and how is he rewarded? With dead, burning bodies—and even worse, attention whores.
Bannon is a hard sell and after Charlottesville, that sell just got harder.
One would hard-pressed to think of better optics for the jubilant Left.
Napoleon once said never interrupt your enemy as he is making a mistake. The lying media loves it when Spencer acts as their dancing monkey. The terrifically embarrassing “press conference” he conducted today simply confirmed Spencer loves the trickle-down media whores’ attention more than anything. Spencer is not a stupid man but he certainly can act like one.
Let’s return to why it was so urgent to remove Confederate memorial statues: Dylann Roof, his manifesto and his Kill Bill-esque church massacre. After Charlottesville, this purge will surely be accelerated. Why would anyone want to keep a magnet sure to draw out-of-town lunatics—Right and Left—in their town? Why not tear them down if only to avoid another war-like clash?
And how many more innocent white people will be attacked, raped, robbed, murdered because of Spencer’s antics? Twitter is awash with “kill whites” hashtags and there’s a viral video of a vibrant holding a knife and hooting “white people, this is your final warning.” Now every white person is a Nazi, and the Left and its pets say you can kill anyone you call a Nazi.
More blood will be shed and when certain people meet their Maker, they will answer for it.
